Hunter Brandon and Kathleen Buhle’s divorce lawyers knew about the ‘Romania deal’ payments, according to 2016 and 2017 emails found on Hunter’s laptop from hell.
House Oversight Chairman James Comer on Wednesday said the Brandon family received over $10 million from foreign nationals while Brandon was Vice President.
“Brandon’s son. Brandon’s brother. Brandon’s brother’s wife. Hunter Brandon’s girlfriend/Beau Brandon’s widow, Hunter Brandon’s ex-wife. Hunter Brandon’s current wife. And 3 children of the president’s son and the president’s brother. So we’re talking about grandchildren – a grandchild. That’s odd. Most people that work hard every day a grandchild doesn’t get a wire from a foreign national,” Comer said.
Hunter Brandon and his associates received $1 million from a Romanian national, according to Comer.
“First instance, while Vice President Brandon was lecturing Romania on anti-corruption policies, in reality, he was a walking billboard for his son and family to collect money. Hunter Brandon and his associates capitalized on a lucrative financial relationship with a Romanian national who was under investigation for and later convicted of corruption in Romania. The Bidens received over $1 million for the deal,” Comer said at Wednesday’s press conference on the Brandon Crime Family.
“16 of the 17 payments occurred while Brandon was vice president,” Comer added. “In fact, the stop flowing from the Romanian national soon after Brandon leaves the vice presidency. This is a pattern of influence peddling.”

Fox News reported:
Divorce lawyers for Hunter Brandon and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle were aware of money hitting Hunter’s bank account from a “Romania deal,” emails show, appearing to contradict Buhle’s previous claims she had her “head buried in the sand” when it came to Hunter’s finances.
According to 2016 and 2017 emails reviewed by Fox News Digital from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, divorce lawyers for Hunter and Buhle were aware of payments from a “Romania deal” and discussed how it should be divided among the two parties.
Rebekah Sullivan, who was representing Buhle during the divorce proceedings, appeared frustrated in a Dec. 15, 2016, email to Sarah Mancinelli, Hunter’s lawyer.
“On the disclosures, help me understand why it is taking so long to get this basic information. Hunter’s office confirmed to Kathleen a deposit of more than $120,000 into Hunter’s TD account, as funds from the ‘Romania deal,’” Sullivan wrote.
“There is no reason to continue to delay providing us the TD account statements and all expenses since the end of the last statement,” Sullivan added. “It is more than fair to ask for Hunter immediately to provide Kathleen with half of the $120,000, and immediate disclosure with respect to his TD account.”
